Celebrate Refugee Week with us
Friday 30 June 2017 6.30pm
2 Course Dinner and a Movie – £12.50
Bring your Own Wine
Kenyan Inspired Menu with food cooked with help from local Cardiff refugees.
The movie “Warehoused” gives an intimate look at the plight long-term refugees face worldwide, by exploring life in Dadaab, Kenya, one of the largest refugee camps in the world. We see the camp’s inner workings through one man’s journey to do everything in his power to provide for his family.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The closest local train station is Queen Street Station and is 5 minute walk away. Limited car parking is available behind the church. Lots of pay and display car parking is available in the surrounding streets, and in nearby parking garages.
What can I bring into the event?
Bring your own wine, and pay a 50p cost per glass
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org

We are a volunteer-led registered charity, run and managed by our members, who include asylum seekers, refugees and other local people. We give a warm welcome to people seeking sanctuary in Swansea through our twice-weekly drop-ins, and offer practical support and educational and recreational opportunities.
Ideally you will have experience of working alongside asylum seekers and refugees – or first-hand experience of seeking asylum. However we are interested in all applicants who have the commitment, skills and attitudes needed for work.
Swansea is a city of welcome and there are a great number of existing services available to asylum seekers and refugees. It is our aim to connect the people we support with much needed help in their new communities.
With the aim of improving the capacity of individuals/organisations in supporting Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the Swansea area, Unity in Diversity (Swansea 2015) and Swansea BayAsylum Seeker Support Group invite you to complete the following activity. Participants who demonstrate a clear understanding of appropriate referral routes will receive a certificate of acknowledgement in using effective signposting.
Using our Directory of Services, appropriate referral routes will be identified using example case scenarios. As this is designed to improve our collective capacity participants and organisations that contribute extra information on new/existing services will have specific feedback and acknowledgement for improving the directory as contributors.
This training is provided free of charge and is open to any individual/organisation with an interest in supporting asylum seekers and refugees. Organisations that have a number of staff participating will receive acknowledgement in the form of an ‘Organisation Certificate’. It is very important to note that many of the services in our directory support the general population, not just asylum seekers and refugees.

Matt’s Cafe is part of the Real Junk Food (TRJF) Project, a network of national and international cafes (both permanent and pop-ups) with one central objective: to intercept food waste destined for land fill and use it to feed people who need it, on a pay as you feel basis.
Matt’s Cafe is the first registered café on the TRJF network in Swansea.
It is based at Matthew’s House, High Street, Swansea, SA1 1LW More info at: http://matthewshouse.org.uk/matts-cafe/
The innovative pay as you feel concept encourages people to think about what that plate of food means to them, and value it in whatever way they can. By choosing not to segregate people based on financial circumstances these cafes can be funded, but in a manner that neither patronises those who need it most and empowers others to freely support it.
It provides the balance between the need for funding and the need for giving, but it does so in a very blended format – everyone is equal in being fed, it is up to the individual to pay what they feel.
Matt’s Cafe is holding a taster session on Monday February 27th between 12 and 4pm and more information can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1841094242805520/
Asylum seekers and refugees are be welcome to attend the cafe and can pay what they can afford / what they feel the food is worth.
